Call for papers


CMID ´07 - 1st International Conference on Cross Media Interaction

CMID ´07 is the first international conference on cross-media
interaction design. The conference will bring together researchers
and practitioners from a wide range of areas to address questions
related to cross media design, new media
landscapes and media- oriented interaction studies.

Hemavan, Sweden

March, 22-25, 2007



The modern media landscape is a mixture of applications, platforms
and media blended with advanced navigational structures in support of
various kinds of activities including marketing, gaming,
collaboration, blogging, and much more. The web as a media platform
is becoming more and more focal. More and more often, web sites
employ the cross-media concept; they include a wide range of media,
such as television, chat, or mobile SMS and MMS.

Cross-media, media convergence, experience design, funology,
affective computing, emotional design etc. are concepts that are
becoming increasingly popular in modern interaction design. However,
cross media interaction design is not solely about the web. Games,
mobile phones, iPods, media players and other mobile devices also
play a big part in this new era of communicating and sharing our
media content to others in the world.

The aim of this conference is at improving our understanding of
interaction design as a cross-media activity without boundaries, an
understanding that takes into account interaction intense user

Topics of relevance may include, but are not limited to:

- Cross-media interaction design studies
- Cases illustrating the web as a cross-media platform
- Theoretical frameworks that address identified issues in relation to
experience design and usability for the web or other media.
- Interaction studies of cross-media concepts addressing, for
instance, user behaviour, choice of interaction platform, interaction
content etc.
- Cultural aspects of cross-media interaction design
- Critical reflections on cross-media interaction design


Position paper outlining main points of departures, possible
theoretical and/or methodological issues, (plausable) results and
finally conclusions to be drawn from the outlined discussion.
